    Default TOTAL_LOOP_TIME variable working?

    Hello everyone,

    I've been trying to use this variable to run a bunch of tests for a given desirable time, as stated in the documentation. However, no matter what I try to do, the tests are executed once and that's all, there is no loop created and the execution is not stopped if the loop time is lower than the test's execution time.


    Hope you can help. Thanks in advance.


    Regards,

    Hello jgdharb,

    I suggest you define your variable before run the Phoronix command.

    I think you execute a test, Phoronix look if you defined one or more variable and execute your test with new variable definition.
    If you don't define variable, Phoronix use standard configuration.

    I hope to help you and sorry, my english isn't good !

    Regards.

    Sorry I didn't see this thread previously. Can you give an example of your variable value and the test(s) you're trying to use?

    Hello,

    Here is a typical example: TOTAL_LOOP_TIME=30 phoronix-test-suite run pts/c-ray
    I assume that c-ray should run in a loop for 30 minutes (I have tried bigger values to guarantee enough time). What happens is that the execution ends before and the loop is not respected.

    If I misunderstood the variable please let me know.
    Thank you all for your replies
    Regards.
